Description

Director and choreographer Anna Martine Whitehead presents "Notes on Territory," which brings together an array of research modalities to address the dialectical concerns: What is the prison; and What is the nature of freedom? "Territory" considers crosses and arches, walls and holes, as means of exploring the rich tradition of oppressed peoples' liberation practices. At its core, the work offers movement as research, in kinship with transdisciplinary artist-philosophers such as Torkwase Dyson, Dawn Lundy Martin, and Renée Green; transdisciplinary scholars such as Simone Browne, Michelle M. Wright, and Katherine McKittrick; and freedom dreamer Harriet Jacobs.

After the Friday evening performance at Green Line Performing Arts Center (329 E. Garfield Blvd.), join the Human Rights Lab for a panel conversation and light snacks.

Panelists will include:
Anna Martine Whitehead (Director and Choreographer of Notes on Territory)
Patrick Pursley (Founder of I Am Kid Culture and Wrongful Conviction Consultants)
Leslie Buxbaum Danzig (Moderator; Assistant Professor of Practice and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Theater and Performance Studies, University of Chicago)
